Inside Out

insideout-teaser-2-580x328[1]

Inside Out, the new Disney Pixar film offers something completely different. And at Pixar’s best, their risk taking has always paid off. Going inside a young girls head we discover 5 main emotions which Riley is guided by; Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust. What the filmmakers manage to do is illuminate the human experience in a new playful, sometimes painful, psychological way. Dynamic storytelling and breaking out of what is expected is always cause for celebration. At least that’s what the joy part of my head is saying.

Nicki Minaj – The Night is Still Young

The-Night-Is-Still-Young-FDRMX[1]

Nicki Minaj can be a bit polarizing for some at times. Bold, raunchy, provocative. She has continued to produce hits with songs Super Bass, Starships, Bang Bang, Pound the Alarm, Anaconda, and now The Night is Still Young. This new song really captures that feeling when you are out with friends and the world is still open to possibilities. In repeated listening it also can be heard from the concept of life in general. “How dare we sit quietly”, “And watch the world pass us by”. “The Night is Still Young”, “And so are we”.

NICKI MINAJ LYRICS (from azlyrics.com)

“The Night Is Still Young”
Yo, ayo tonight is the night that I’ma get twisted
Myx Moscato and vodka, I’ma mix it
Roll that spaceship, we about to get lifted
Live in the present, that gift is for the gifted
This what you came, this what you came for
You get what you buy, this what you paid for
So make sure the stars is what you aim for
Make mistakes though

I never worry, life is a journey
I just wanna enjoy the ride
What is the hurry? It’s pretty early
It’s ok, we’ll take our time

The night is still young
The night is still young
The night is still young
And so are we
The night is still young (How dare we sit quietly)
The night is still young (And watch the world pass us by)
The night is still young (How dare we sit quietly)
So are we

Ayo, drinks on you or the drinks is on me
We ain’t going nowhere like tanks is on E
We still getting money, what bank it’s gon’ be?
If he’s sexy, he plankin’ on me
So where them big boys with all of that?
Hey! Tell the bartender, say my order back
Hey! It’s bottle service, he ordered that
Hey! Might let him take it home and slaughter that
He got friends for all of my friends
They ain’t leavin’ til we say when
And we gonna hangover the next day
But we will remember this day
So drop the pop and get low
Or we can drop the top and just cruise
We fresh to death, down to the shoes
My only motto in life is don’t lose

I never worry, life is a journey
I just wanna enjoy the ride
What is the hurry? It’s pretty early
It’s ok, we’ll take our time

The night is still young
The night is still young
The night is still young
And so are we
The night is still young (How dare we sit quietly)
The night is still young (And watch the world pass us by)
The night is still young (How dare we sit quietly)
So are we

We’re just gettin’ started, yeah, yeah
We’re just gettin’ started, yeah, yeah
Can’t you see the night’s still early
And we gon’ get it wild and crazy

We’re just gettin’ started, yeah, yeah
We’re just gettin’ started, yeah, yeah
Can’t you see the night’s still early
And we gon’ get it wild and crazy

The night is still young
The night is still young
The night is still young
And so are we
The night is still young (How dare we sit quietly)
The night is still young (And watch the world pass us by)
The night is still young (How dare we sit quietly)
So are we

(How dare we sit quietly)
(And watch the world pass us by)
(How dare we sit quietly)
(And watch the world pass us by)

Fiverr

Fiverr

Recently discovered the site Fiverr.com when a friend posted an animated drawing of herself. It had clearly been created by someone and not a bitmoji/avator. I asked her where she had this done and she pointed me to Fiverr.com. It’s a website where artists and designers offer their services starting at $5.00. Amazing. And the artists are from graphics & design, marketing, writing, animation, music, tech, audio, a category called bizarre, and more. Another example of how the internet is changing everything about our world. A watercolor portrait for $5. Or my favorite, a cube moose. For $5. What could be better?

Taylor Swift – Bad Blood (Bonus Fascination)

bad blood

This video already has over 170 million views. But the reason for the fascination is that it was one of my least favorite songs on Taylor Swift’s 1989 album. Here’s the trick…the Swift team clearly saw an opportunity to reinvent the song with a new arrangement and instantly classic video that has already spawned spoofs and raves. Female power, action film motif, cool direction, excellent effects. A testament to working on something until it lands. And the song reached #1 on Billboard Top 100. Not bad.

Prosthetics for Pets

ht_cat_prosthetic_sr_140422_16x9_992[1]

On the Today show they recently had a feature about Prosthetics for Pets. Wasn’t really aware that this was something developing and progressing. Just as with humans, things happen and limbs are lost. With loving support of owners, animals are allowed an opportunity to return to a relatively normal life. Being a pet owner it was particularly touching.

There are so many people in need all over the world who need support in many many ways. And it is also nice to see these loving companions getting attention and care so they too can live a full life.
